Hideaki Hatta, head of Kyoto Animation, told reporters the company had gotten threats by emails in the past but responded "sincerely" each time.
Hatta asked, "Why on earth did such violence have to be used?"
A man suspected of starting the fire Thursday was also injured and being treated in a hospital.
